This little book makes no claim to originality. The author states that there is no similar compendium in the German language, and he has compiled this manual from a variety of sources. Points of note are the excellent illustrations, the key table to the identification of parasites and ova and the good paper and print. The book should have a wide use in countries in which German is spoken.
